Note:
*Transport Scotland report freight tonnage through major and minor ports. These ports were assigned to local authorities. However, several ports in the Clyde region are only reported for statistical purposes as ‘Clyde’ and so the tonnage can’t be allocated to the correct local authority. They are shown here under the Clyde heading, although this is not a valid local authority. Equally, Forth ports carry the highest tonnage of freight traffic, and the recording rules mean that the ports are assigned to Fife. Hence, no freight is recorded as carried through Edinburgh City local authority.
